Suns’ Deandre Ayton invites all the rookies to his future wedding

Deandre Ayton

It seems like Phoenix Suns rookie Deandre Ayton is greatly enjoying his life so far as an NBA player.

While taking photos at the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot, Ayton was in a playful mood, grabbing a mic in between shots to sing along to Ella Mai’s radio hit “Boo’d Up.”

While dancing and doing his best to hit the right notes, Ayton threw out a surprise invitation to all the rookies present, announcing that all present would be welcome to attend his future wedding.

While nothing has been made official, perhaps Ayton is eyeing a date to pop the question to his college sweetheart, Anissa Evans, who was present when he was picked No. 1 overall by the Suns in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The 7-footer from the Bahamas is looking to live up to the expectations of a top pick and build off an excellent college season with Arizona, where he averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game while shooting a remarkable 61.2 percent from the field.

Ayton will be paired with another rising star in Devin Booker, and the duo looks to form a formidable one-two punch off the pick-and-roll. If they can mesh, NBA defenses better watch out.

Ayton has a lot to live up to, but his calm and laid-back demeanor suggests that he is ready and willing to take on the challenges of NBA basketball. Let’s just hope that he swaps that microphone for a basketball before our ears start bleeding.
